Dennis Brantner was convicted of homicide for the 1990 death of Berit ‘Beri’ Beck. Brantner was discovered as a suspect in 2014 when fingerprints, identified as belonging to Brantner, were identified on items from the van Berit was driving when she was last seen alive.
District Attorney Eric Toney stated at the time of conviction that “No family should be forced to endure what Berit Beck’s family has gone through over the past 27 1/2 years. There is no amount of prison time or punishment that can bring ‘Beri’ back or take away the anguish this family experiences. My heart goes out to the family and friends of Berit Beck.”
Brantner was convicted in February of 2018.
